This Is the question always asked by the prudent land buyer.
When land was cheap such a question was seldom asked, and lit
tle attention was given to the subject. Any Justice of the peace
or notary was good enough to draw up a deed or mortgage, and
abstracts were seldom called for. Consequently the records
teem with errors. Erroneous descriptions, unsealed deeds, mis
spelled names, unpaid taxes, uncancelled Judgments, irregular ac
knowledgments, failure to state whether grantor was married or
single, mortgages and liens paid but not satisfied on the rec
ord, are a few of the errors constantly occurring in the in
vestigation of titles. Loan companies and careful buyers will
not take defective titles or buy a law suit. The time to have
these defects remedied is now while it can be done.
This subject is so closely connected with the selling of real
estate that we have Installed an abstract department, and are
in a position to make reliable abstracts of title,
